I notice that software products older than Mac OS X 10.6 are not highlighted on the upgrade screens.  Does this mean that they can not be upgraded?  I have Mac OS X 10.58 and would like to upgrade but I do not see that as an option.

    If you need to purchase Snow Leopard you can get a copy from Apple's online store's telesales agents.[1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753) or Customer Service and Sales Support at 1-800-676-2775.] Ask for a Sales Representative.


    Third-party sources for Snow Leopard are:


    Snow Leopard from Amazon.com

    Snow Leopard from eBay


    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store.
